Terret Blanc by Neil Cammies - 01/2021
In the mouth, the wine shows weightier apricot stonefruits and that austere minerality that dries out the palate, giving the wine structure and interest throughout its journey accross the tastebuds.

Christmas Wine roll-call by Tom Cannavan - 12/2020
There's real depth and spice-touched glossy black fruit on the nose, meaty yet at the same time touched with floral and garrigue perfume.
Christmas Wine roll-call - 12/2020
Delicate, lightly floral aromas sit atop peach and juicy ripe pear, the the palate has more easy drinking, stone, fruit flavours, but edged with a fine line of grapefruity citrus to give definition.
Saint Chinian White by Neil Cammies - 11/2020
The CALMEL & JOSEPH ‘LES CRUS’ SAINT-CHINIAN BLANC 2018 is a rare thing indeed, with the Saint-Chinian commune being primarily a red wine area. But the chaps have herded together a quartet of some tasty white varieties – grenache, blanc roussanne, vermentino and viognier – to create a proper tasty drop. The bouquet has the most bounteous stone and orchard fruit aromas, which are held aloft by some savoury wood tones straight off the vine from the six months ageing in oak, that add a smidge of smoke to the nose. On the palate, there is a floral delicacy initially to the peach and apricot fruit. Then, crisp citrus acidity dashes in through the mid-palate, giving the wine a freshness and elongating the time on the tastebuds. The mineral tone comes through on the generous finish in this lovely white Saint-Chinian.
